Thomas and just finished something we began about a year ago … All 7 seasons of The Clone Wars. Every Wednesday after dinner we watched 3 episodes.
We enjoyed doing this together, so very much. And we were thrilled when The Mandalorian tied in with this.
Thank you to my Jr High School friend, Lillie Powell Salsberry, for suggesting that we watch. She and I were huge Star Wars fans, back in the day. We were official members of the Fan Club. That was back when everything was through the mail. We received posters, and official fan club goodies (which I still have!) Love you, Lillie! ❤️🎉❤️

Subbing in Nightingale today (1st – 3rd). Sweet Katherine gave me a compliment note! I have so much respect for teachers. There’s no way I’d want to do this every day, yet I love and enjoy being here for the teachers as they need me!

Just back from giving my “Why She Doesn’t Talk Like Us” Presentation to Lillian’s 3rd grade class. Added some new material this year since this is the 3rd year in a row most of her classmates have heard this. Lillian was my assistant this year ~ hope to hand this torch over to her next year or the next!
